EIGHT neighbours in Winsford are celebrating today after winning £1,000 each thanks to their lucky postcode.

The Rosewood Drive neighbours netted the windfall when CW7 2UZ was announced as a daily prize winner with People’s Postcode Lottery on Monday, February 10.

People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Judie McCourt sent her best wishes to the winners. She said: “What a fantastic way to start the week. Congratulations to our winners, I hope they go out and treat themselves with their winnings.”

This draw was promoted by Maggie’s which has received more than £14.8 million in funding from the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Maggie’s runs a network of cancer support centres all over the UK. These centres bring people together to help combat the isolation and distress that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis.

Many good causes close to the winners have also benefitted from players’ support and local charities can apply for funding now.
